Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Guitar quilting

Yesterday I finished the story of Marnie’s guitar quilt top.

The next step was to get it quilted!! I asked if she wanted to quilt it using a walking foot and lots of straight vertical lines or did she want me to free-motion-quilt it.

She chose FMQ so we sat at the machine and she watched while I quilted.

We kept the design simple with wavy lines that followed the “landscape” look…..

It was fast and easy and before long it was finished and ready for binding.

We tried a couple of binding fabrics but finally decided that a good black fabric would frame it best…..

Doesn’t she look happy with the finished quilt…..

AND…..I do believe that she has caught the bug.

She was recently given a nice sewing machine, quilting supplies and patterns, and she has already picked out the first quilt that she wants to make!!!

I can’t wait to see what she creates over the years!!!
